Hi, My Name is Savannah,
When I was born my parents never imagined my immune system would turn on itself.
On October 25, 2010, my carefree life changed forever, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes. It has destroyed all the insulin producing cells in my pancreas.
Before Diabetes I was just a regular kid. Now I have to check my blood and poke my finger 6 to 10 times a day, which really hurts.
I don't look different, but right now diabetes is ravaging every organ in my body.
I have an insulin pump now attached to my body, the insulin keeps me alive, buts ITS NOT A CURE.
And I will have it FOREVER; my only hope is a CURE.
That is why I support JDRF.
I am walking with JDRF at Six Flags New England to help fund Diabetes Research. Please help support my team to find a cure.
Thank You and together with your support we can find a cure!!
